Yesterday was the second Blog the Change for Animals event of the year. It is an event for bloggers to post about an animal cause that’s close to their heart in order to raise awareness for that cause.
There are countless opportunities for animal lovers to bring awareness to the needs of our animal friends. Four times a year Blog the Change inspires us to share links, ideas and join together to make a difference.
The organizations we would like to feature is Guiding Eyes for the Blind. Blindness and autism are devastating disabilities that few of us can comprehend. Guiding Eyes gives the blind the gift of greater personal freedom, independence and dignity by providing the finest bred and trained guide dogs in the world. Heeling Autism dogs provide safety for children with autism.
Guiding Eyes is an internationally accredited, nonprofit guide dog school with a 50-plus year legacy of providing the blind and visually impaired with superior trained guide dogs.
Since 1956 when founded, Guiding Eyes has become one of the foremost guide dog schools in the world, graduating more than 7,000 guide dog teams. It provides superbly bred guide dogs, professional training and follow-up support services to students at no cost to them and depends on contributions to fulfill its mission.
